Defining Conditioned Space

The areas of a house that are heated or cooled are referred to as conditioned space. But determining what constitutes the conditioned space is not always so straightforward. In an uninsulated house with lots of significant air leaks, there may be no boundary between the conditioned and unconditioned spaces because the heat loss is so large. How to determine the boundary of conditioned space is one of a crew chief's jobs, mainly because it will determine where to do air-sealing and install insulation.

After completing this lesson, auditors will be able to do the following:

  • Define conditioned space
  • Recognize the importance of limiting a house's conditioned space
  • Identify the conditioned space in a house
  • Understand the importance of getting a homeowner's input about how they use the different areas of a house
